The Mission: Share advice and inspiration to get girls and women inspired to embrace wellness and adventure!
Hey everyone! I’m Molly Hurford, author, coach and lover of all things outdoors. Cycling and running are my passions, writing is my life, and luckily, I’ve found an amazing way to combine the two.
I write about training, nutrition, and active travel, fashion & lifestyle on this blog as well as for publications like Bicycling magazine, Map My Fitness, Outside and Nylon about fitness and fashion. I also co-host a podcast, The Consummate Athlete.
In addition to running The Outdoor Edit and writing for other outlets, I’m the author of Saddle, Sore: Ride Comfortable, Ride Happy and Fuel Your Ride. I’m also the author of the middle grade Shred Girls novel series, and Shred Girls is also a website/brand for young girls interested in getting rad on bikes.
But I don’t just love sport from a literary lens! I’m a certified USA Cycling & PMBI-certified MTB and cycling coach as well as a Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach and a Yoga Alliance-registered teacher. I’m also part of the Women in Sport Academic Network (WiSEAN) and a Fast + Female Sport Expert. My husband (Peter Glassford, founder of SmartAthlete) and I travel around North America hosting talks and running clinics focused on riding, racing, training, nutrition and women’s-specific issues.
I’d love to hear from you about any fun adventure stories or tips you have, or any articles you’d love to see.
